, is political. it's not economic. right now, congress is obviously very divided. they're not working together. they're going to have to, if they want to, for instance, raise the debt ceiling and avoid a financial crisis. the question is, can barack obama do a better job of helping them do that because there's been a lot of complaints in congress that he hasn't been leading. he has even offended members of congress by applying they're not doing their job. so i think there's this political question that's overlaid this very thorny economic question. >> will the leadership of this president make a difference? will he have to lead differently than he did in the first time? >> he does and i think he has already learned how to. he has shown a learning curving, the way he has framed the debt ceiling debate saying he will not let america be held hostage in these negotiations. that's one of the real key questions of a second term. can you go from lucky or good to good to great, is this. will the president really lead on debt? will he pull a nixon on china when it comes to debt and start leading on ent
